      Hola Pascual, te actualizo la información:
      Hemos sacado una solución automática, que siempre que la maquina este comunicando, se va aplicar de manera automática y transparente para el usuario, restaurando los elementos de la cuarentena.
      Para los casos que no haya comunicación y no pueda bajarse la herramienta automática, se necesitara ejecutar la herramienta standalone,, en la que estamos trabajando, y que estará disponible esta noche.

Lamentablemente, sin el Panda instalado, nuestra herramienta no puede restaurar los ficheros de una cuarentena que ya no está disponible. Lamentamos las molestias ocasionadas.

    Hola soy un distribuidor, nuestra oficina se ha colapsado esta tarde después de esta famosa actualización. Gracias a que son mínimas las licencias de antivirus panda que tenemos, pero aún así, se han quedado inutilizados unos 50 – 100 ordenadores de clientes nuestros (mañana sabremos el alcance exacto). No sé qué solución van a dar, lo que si sé es que ustedes no disponen de ningún control de calidad para hacer que estas situaciones no se den, lo cual me hace no poder confiar en su empresa. Para mí, todas sus certificaciones, sus premios, sus auditorias de calidad, su ingeniería del software, en fin… todo… han perdido toda su validez. ¿ Como pueden permitirse una situación como ésta y buscarnos un problema tan grave a los distribuidores ?. Espero que ninguno de mis clientes denuncie esta situación.

        What a shame. I just contacted their customer support, and the rep said at this point they have no idea how they will help those who restarted their computers, and those who uninstalled Panda. I truly cannot believe the damage that has been done. The whole reason why we all put this software on our computer was to prevent issues like these from happening.

          Hi Paul. we have deployed an automated solution for the computers that are still in communication with Panda, which is executed in a transaparent way for the user. For those computers where there is no communication and the automated tool cannot be downloaded, a stand alone tool which will be ready later tonight will have to be executed. If your computer is offline, that tool will have to be executed manuall through a usb drive.
          For those who have uninstalled Panda, the quarantine has been deleted so the automated restore is not possible. In that case some applications will need to be reinstalled.

    Reddit seems to be the best place to get updates. It’s very surprising that when this became a known issue that customers of Panda were not notified directly. While I understand that issues will arise in software development, the lack of QA and communications around the issue are really unacceptable for a company the size of Panda.

    Had the same issue on several clients. Here’s what we did to be able to start the server/pc when computer does not boot or get a black screen.

    Boot in safe mode –> disable all services of panda –> reboot in safe mode again –> delete the “Panda Security” folder from C:\Programs and Files –> restart in normal mode. You will be able to install software if they have been affected.

      Hi Andy, we were not suggesting that solution because deleting the Panda solution deletes the quarantine, so the files stored there dissappear and as you say, you need then to reinstall some applications.

        Hi Boratto, we have deployed an automated solution for the computers that are still in communication with Panda, which is executed in a transaparent way for the user. For those computers where there is no communication and the automated tool cannot be downloaded, a stand alone tool which will be ready later tonight will have to be executed. If your computer is offline, that tool will have to be executed manuall through a usb drive. We’re really sorry for the inconvenience.

      For both computers, no matter if they have re-booted or not, our recomnedation is not to reboot again and wait for the automated tool to execute itself. In case this did not work, we would apply the manual tool as soon as it is available.

    We have just tried this automated solution on one of the few PCs that still have Panda working – the rest had been rebooted & now don’t work. The update ran automatically but only restored 2 files. Hundreds of files are missing. This solution does not work. If they are not in quarantine, how can they ever be restored?

    Thanks for the updates, it’s invaluable to have a real feed of the what your doing to rectify the problem, shame you couldn’t just mail shot me when you detected the error.

    That said, I’m not sure the problem is as bad as it sounds at least certainly for me! I’ve had 3 clients affected today with this update so am grateful it wasn’t more. The symptoms of the flawed update seem to vary though. Some machines are fine, some had applications that got quarantined ( and I could restore from the console), some machines have applications broken and also broke the panda product, but I understand the standalone tool should fix this when its released.

    I also have machines that got rebooted against your suggestions, but boot into safe mode and allowed me to disable the panda services and boot up again ok.

    I do have a bit of work to get the clients operational again, but they are understanding, they used another product in the passed which went wrong and took nearly 4 days to rectify.. Please please make your tool available soon.

    Finally, I WILL be submitting my Invoice to Panda as this charge for my time and my colleagues time can NOT be passed on to them. I am VERY disappointed in the support received from Panda. I tried to call the support line earlier today, in between engaged tones and on the odd occasion the call got answered and then got hung up straight away. I will however give credit where credit is due, and my account manager saw the missed calls, and CALLED me back. We had a good discussion on what had caused the issue, no bull….t answers either, so for that I am grateful.

      Look for “Network Activity Hook Server LightWeight Filter Driver”. Highlight and then Click Uninstall. Then run “ipconfig /renew”. That will at least get you back on line!!!

      The tool worked fine so far on some workstations I tried it on.

      Some kind of output window to know when the tool is done with whatever it’s doing would have been nice though…

    My laptop was mostly working after the new signature file until I powered it off for the trip home.
    Now, I cannot log on. I get a Logon Process Initialization Failure pop up normally or in Safe mode.
    How do I get past this latest nastiness???

      Hello, the way to check if the computer is ok, is to check if there are no files in the quarantine. To do that you need to follow the following steps:
      1. Go to Start – Run and write the following instruction:
      • %programdata% (for Windows 8.1 , Windows 7 and Windows Vista )
      • “C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Datos de Programa” (for Windows XP and Windows 2000 )
      2. Access the following folder: Panda Security\Panda Security Protection\Quarantine and check that there is no file there with the date March 11th 2015.
      If there is no file with that date, it means that the automated solution has been applied correctly.
      In the contrary, you must apply the solution available on the support article: Information regarding an issue with the signature file in Panda Cloud Office Protection and Retail 2015: http://www.pandasecurity.com/homeusers/support/card?id=100045

    I work in a company of 100+ workstations. All PCs remained online during last night, although some of them fell to sleep. Today morning Panda icon has a yellow exclamation mark with a message “pending restart to eliminate some viruses”. I updated with right click, a pop up says that changes where applied successfully, but it still asks for a restart to eliminate viruses.

    Is it safe now to restart?

      Before restarting please verify that there are no files on the quarantine. For that:
      1. Go to Start – Run and write the following instruction:
      • %programdata% (for Windows 8.1 , Windows 7 and Windows Vista )
      • “C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Datos de Programa” (for Windows XP and Windows 2000 )
      2. Access the following folder: Panda Security\Panda Security Protection\Quarantine and check that there is no file there with the date March 11th 2015.

      If there are no files there, you can restart safely.

        I think it would be better if there was a progress bar to the fix files application… I watch the quarantine folder with 178 files and the restore process is > 1 file/s.

        In some PCs I applied the fix and restart the computer after 30s as there was nothing happening to tell me what was going on..

    Dear Panda team, the page with the fix husband link on how to start safe mode. However, this only provides options for starting safe mode with window 7 or xp.
    I have windows 8.1, have already googled how to start safe mod, but none of those suggestions seem to work. This is because many use cmd, and my computer gets stuck before being able to log in. It is on an endless loop of the ‘please wait’ screen.
    I really need your help. And frankly I am disappointed with the situation and the fix instructions not being applocable to multiple situations.

    The fix apparently does not work – on some PC’s the COMCTL32.DLL system file has been quarantined, and the repair utility seems to be dependent on it, a Catch-22 type situation.

      Hello Ide. The problem with the signature file affected some files that were moved to quarantine. If you uninstalled the Panda antivirus, those files in quarantine are no longer there unless you chose to maintain them during the uninstallation process. The tool we have created to solve the problem restored the files back to their original folders, but it will not work if the product has been uninstalled. In this case you should repair the system.

      Hello Fonseca. Please try the following:
      1. Download the following zip file (password: panda) http://www.pandasecurity.com/resources/sop/ps_recovery_comctl32.7z
      2. Run the resulting folder in the affected PC
      3. Open cmd as admin
      4. Sc stop psinprot
      5. Sc stop psinaflt
      6. Sc stop nanoservicemain
      7. From the cmd window, browse in the extracted folder to the path “ quarantinefix\tool “ and run testerNano.exe
      The cmd window will close. The process is silent, the testerNano.exe won’t be seen on the task manager, so please wait a few seconds for the tool to finish, and then you can go to the quarantine folder to check there are no files there.
      Please let us know if you have any additional problem.

    Hola Marta:

    En casos que al encender el ordenador te sale la ausencia del comctl32.dll, la instrucción que indicas solucionaría la incidencia o hay algún paso al encender un ordenador que podamos hacer?

    No se puede acceder en safe mode o normal mode por la ausencia de dicho fichero.

    Finalmente confío que pasara el temporal para todos satisfactoriamente.

    saludos,

      Hola Ramiro. Para solucionar la ausencia del comctl32.dll, sigue estos pasos:
      1. Descárgate el siguiente zip. Contraseña: panda
      http://www.pandasecurity.com/resources/sop/ps_recovery_comctl32.7z
      2. Ejecuta la carpeta resultante en el ordenador afectado.
      3. Abre CMD como administrador.
      4. Sc stop psinprot
      5. Sc stop psinaflt
      6. Sc stop nanoservicemain
      7. Desde la venatna CMD, examina la carpeta extraída y selecciona la ruta “quarantinefix\tool” y ejecuta testerNano.exe
      La ventana CMD se cerrará. Es un proceso silencioso, el testerNano.exe no aparecerá en el administrador de tareas, así que, por favor, espera un par de segundos hasta que la herramienta termine de ejecutarse. Después ve a la carpeta de cuarentena para asegurarte de que no hay ningún archivo. Si tienes algún problema, no dudes en ponerte en contacto con nosotros.

        Hola Marta
        Como se debe proceder cuando aparece el mensaje de que falta el archivo COMCTL32.DLL y no permite continuar con la carga del Windows en ningún modo, ni normal, ni a prueba de fallos. Tengo aproximadamente 60 máquinas con problemas y de estas unas 10 no arrancan por el mismo problema. Alguna solución?

    Marta,
    em todos os procedimentos passados por vocês ainda tenho inúmeras maquinas que estão sem funcionar …
    eu não consigo ter acesso a pronpt de comando em modo administrador e nem consigo entrar na tela do windows
    pelo modo de segurança, maquinas que são necessárias para o uso do expediente, ja entrei em contato com o suporte e ninguém
    da uma posição sobre este erro… ( iertutil.dll em grande maioria das maquinas esta faltando este arquivo )
    windows não iniciar de jeito nenhum. desde já agradeço uma posição.

    Marta,
    in all procedures passed by you still have several machines that are not working …
    I can not access the command pronpt in Administrator Mode and can not even get into the windows screen
    by safe mode, machines that are necessary for the use of the file, since I contacted support and no one
    of a position on this error … (iertutil.dll in vast majority of machines is missing this file)
    Windows does not start at all. I thank you a position.

    My computer is still not fixed. Emailed the support department of The Netherlands over 18 hours ago informing them that the cmd instructions did not work. It said that “cs is not recognized…” therefore I am still stuck and been unable to access two computers at home for almost 48 hours now…..
    Still no reply, unfortunately.

    Hola,

    Tengo varios PC que no quieren iniciarse en modo seguro, en la empresa en la que trabajo la mitad de las workstations tienen el mismo problema (el departamento de informática está loco), mi padre en el despacho tampoco pueden arrancar sus ordenadores !!!

    Hace dos días que estoy siguiendo éste post y mi desesperación va en aumento.

    Sabes cuando tendréis la herramienta para que aquellos que no podemos acceder en modo seguro podamos solucionar el problema?

    Muchas gracias y ánimo!

    Hola Marta:

    Para compartir alguna información adicional, en base a nuestra experiencia.

    La solución http://www.pandasecurity.com/spain/homeusers/support/card?id=100045 funciona, aunque para nosotros es la que en menos ordenadores terminaba el proceso tal cual vuestras indicaciones. Veiamos en el task manager el proceso en 2do plano pero no veíamos que se moviera el proceso. Salvo que hayan actualizado la herramienta posterior a su publicación).

    Por otra parte, la más efectiva para nosotros ha sido la solución referida a http://www.pandasecurity.com/resources/sop/ps_recovery_comctl32.7z funciona bien; hubo algunos casos con programas clientes (CRM, ERP, AS400) tienen que ser reinstalados.
    Aquellas que al inicio les sale este mensaje del comctl32.dll y no pueden acceder a safe mode o modo normal, la única forma nos funcionó era apretando F8 y seleccionado “restaurar a punto anterior”

    Nuestro ultimo escollo en la que hoy nos están exigiendo solución son aquellas cuyos ordenadores de pantalla negra que lamentablemente al acceder al inicio pulsando F8 solo disponen de 4 opciones:
    Modo Seguro
    Modo Seguro con Funciones de Red
    Modo Seguro LInea de Comando
    Modo Normal
    Y en todas las opciones se queda en negro la pantalla, lamentablemente no tienen la opción de punto de restauración
    Nose si con disco de sistema operativo en “reparar sistema” (la opcion actualizar creo en W7) al inicio de booteo, pueda funcionar.
    En este escenario nose como ayudarlos y decirles lo del formateo podría derramar el vaso; estoy preocupado.
    Si alguien tiene alguna sugerencia o experiencia de como pudo solucionar este escenario, ojala pueda compartir por este post como lo hizo.

    Líneas arriba he leído que están desarrollando una solución para estos casos, por favor podrías comentarnos si hoy 13/3 crees que tengan algo al respecto?

    Tengo 3 clientes (220, 350 y 200 licencias) de los cuales 1 vence este mes y dos en abril; tocarles el tema de renovación seria echar sal a la herida. En estos casos agradeceré vuestras recomendaciones de como proceder.

    Gracias y saludos.

    Dear Panda team,

    On Tuesday, I was able to resolve the issue for one of the two affected computers in my house.
    I was succesful in doing so, because I was able to restore the system to an earlier date.
    This then allowed me to log in, enter the cmd lines and run the fix.

    Unfortunately, the other computer in my house, is on an endless loop op the “your PC needs to be repaired” screen, and is not responding to any of the many suggested fixes (or my other attempts to just get further that the restore wizard – even a factory reset did’nt work).
    I am also in contact with the customer support of The Netherlands, but it has been a week now since my computer worked.
    At this point, I don’t even know how to express my disappointment and frustration any more.
